Achievement through Counseling and Treatment (ACT)

JEVS Achievement through Counseling and Treatment (ACT) helps individuals whose lives have been negatively impacted by substance abuse to develop a recovery program and move toward achieving their potential. We provide our patients the treatment, skills, supports, resources and alternative pharmacologic methods to accomplish these goals and to further enhance their emotional, physical and spiritual well-being.

We offer these services in a culture that values the belief that each client is entitled to confidentiality, dignity and respect while receiving the highest standard of care possible.

ACT is CARF accredited, meaning it is recognized as demonstrating quality of services and value, conforming to rigorous and internationally recognized organizational and program standards by CARF International, an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services.
